1-800-BAND: Diver Blue: 12”EP

I unabashedly love power pop and this record delivers, having all of the trappings of a solid power pop band straight out of the early ‘80s. Sounding not unlike early material from The Cars or maybe even something like The Plimsouls, this four song EP sounds and looks as authentic as they come, which is quite a feat for a current band playing this kind of stuff. Much like an early ‘80s teen movie, it’s all about being carefree, having fun, and getting the girl (or boy) in the end. That’s exactly where this record takes me, and it’s quite an enjoyable ride.
